Activity induced synchronization: From Mutual Flocking to Chiral Self-Sorting

24 Jan 2019 Levis Demian Pagonabarraga Ignacio Liebchen Benno

Synchronization, the temporal coordination of coupled oscillators, allows fireflies to flash in unison, neurons to fire collectively and human crowds to fall in step on the London Millenium bridge. Here, we interpret active (or self-propelled) chiral microswimmers with a distribution of intrinsic frequencies as motile oscillators and show that they can synchronize over very large distances, even for local coupling in 2D...
